Scale Vehicle Convoy Hood Flags Page 1
As WW2 went on, hood flags were seen as big, colorful targets for strafing P-51 Mustangs and Thunderbolts to zero in on and so their use was abruptly discontinued by the Germans. Later however, when the Allies achieved full air superiority, they too, began to use hood flags for the same reasons-- protection from friendly fire, parades and pride!
In later conflicts (Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm), hood flags continued to be used as a way of cheering on the troops or marking the beginning and end of a convoy. Today, they are used in parades and celebrations.Ooh-rah!
LARGE (trucks, halftracks) hood flags are approx. 4.5" x 8"
GIANT hood (tank and armored vehicles) flags are approx. 8" x 10"
Please note that these sizes are the average. Some flags may be slightly larger, and some may be slightly smaller (depending on their specific shape and design). Most flags will fit within these dimensions, but there are exceptions.

PLEASE NOTE: If you want to create custom 1/6th scale figures depicting really EVIL forces for your heroes to battle, you can't get any worse than WW2 German soldiers of the Schutzstaffel or "SS." These genocidal murderers were clearly the "Worst of the Worst." We urge you to learn more about the TERRIBLE atrocities committed by such German forces (especially the SS). The incredibly high level of human suffering caused by those men must NEVER be forgotten. To begin, we recommend you visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website FOUND HERE. Thank you.
